Who is this class for: This course is designed to give you a comprehensive view of the cloud computing landscape. our assumption is that you already have a working knowledge of computer science. Even though the course does not involve much of programming exercises (we do have one tutorial you can try to follow and learn), we expect the student to have some prior exposure to computers particularly in enterprise backend and server environments.

It's very useful.

Great course, covers wide range of contents relating to Could technology. Quiz is very well designed to test your understanding.

Good class overall. I was not really a fan of the teaching styles at the beginning because they pack a lot of info and just keep going. Examples are pretty rare and quizzes require you to have an analytical understanding of the material which you can't get from the lectures themselves easily.

This is a great introduction for someone who wants to see what's available in terms of open source and proprietary cloud systems. The lectures definitely cover items that people actually use in industry, and the lecturers describe the technologies in products accurately.
